Manny Pacquiao Shakes Head at Khabib: He Was Wrong

An investigation into the events that unfolded following Khabib Nurmagomedov's victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229 is being carried out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Nurmagomedov retained his lightweight title by submitting the returning McGregor in the fourth round but proceeded to jump out of the octagon and spark a brawl by leaping towards the Irishman's team.

McGregor was then involved in a scuffle inside the cage after two individuals entered it behind him and both fighters were escorted out of the main arena in Las Vegas.

"The Nevada State Athletic Commission's primary function is to regulate unarmed combat within the state of Nevada. The events that occurred on October 6, 2018 at the conclusion of the Nurmagomedov-McGregor contest - the main event of UFC 229 - are currently under investigation by the Commission's executive director, Bob Bennett," read an NSAC statement.

"Neither the Commission nor its staff, including executive director Bennett, will comment on matters under investigation."

UFC president Dana White suggested Nurmagomedov could be stripped of his title for his actions and said the NSAC had withheld the Russian's share of the purse.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police confirmed no arrests were made following the fighting in the aftermath of the main event and no one involved wished to press charges.

Eight division champion Manny Pacquiao, who at one time was mulling the idea of a boxing match with McGregor, says Khabib should be fined or suspended - or both.

"I think it shouldn’t have happened since the fight was over and they’re just waiting for the decision. Khabib is wrong for attacking McGregor’s camp. I think a suspension or fine is in order,” said Pacquiao to the Manila Times.

Pacquiao added that he has no plan of fighting McGregor in a boxing match like his archrival Floydmayweather Jr. did last year.

“None,” said Pacquiao.

It's mostly always a western thing where people act like thugs just to make publicity. Not saying khabib was unjustified but i think he already settled his grudge when he choked mcgregor, jumping over the cage into the crowd where…
